Why Obama deserves a second term in office


OTTUMWA — President Obama deserves a second term in office. Of course he didn’t do all that he wanted to help the country out of the mess he inherited because of the Republicans in Congress that wanted him to fail ... they would rather this great country suffer than to do what is right for it.

President Obama was elected in 2008, and they should have gave him the chance to undo the wrongs of the eight years before he got there. Talk about the definition of insanity of “doing the same thing and expecting a different result” ... why would we go back to doing the same things as eight years ago and expect a different result? We are finally moving FORWARD ... lets not go BACKWARDS.
